II Hymn — "God of Our Fathers" 


God of our fathers, whose almighty hand 
Leads forth in beauty all the starry band 
Of shining worlds in splendor through the skies, 
Our grateful songs before Thy throne arise. 

Thy love divine hath led us in the past; 

In this free land by Thee our lot is cast; 

Be Thou our Ruler, Guardian, Guide, and Stay, 

Thy Word our law, Thy paths our chosen way. 

From war's alarms, from deadly pestilence, 
Be Thy strong arm our ever sure defense; 
Thy true religion in our hearts increase, 
Thy bounteous goodness nourish us in peace. 

Refresh Thy people on their toilsome way, 
Lead us from night to never-ending day; 
Fill all our lives with love and grace divine, 
And glory, laud, and praise be ever Thine.

(Tune — "How Can I Leave Thee") 

Hail, Dear Old Shaw U 
Thy sons revere thy name, 
Long shall thy works be proud, 
Undimmed thy fame. 
Time shall thy praises sing, 
Glory repay thy tears, 
And loud thy praises ring 
Through all the years. 

Noble thy hallways, 
Noble thy grassy plain, 
Nobler the hearts of men 
Where thou dost reign. 
All we who love thy name 
Stout hearts that shall not fail, 
All rise and loud proclaim, 
Alma Mater, Hail!
